Our station is downtown across from the GRAM in Grand Rapids, and when I arrived at the office on Saturday evening just after 5pm, I was met with GRPD, the fire department and an ambulance outside of the Louis-Campau parking garage.  Someone had fallen from the structure.

According to WZZM13, who spoke with police on the scene, they've identified the fall victim as an adult woman and said her death was being ruled a suicide.

When I left the office, southbound Monroe was closed at Louis St. and looked like it would stay blocked for a good part of Saturday evening.

As I posted to Facebook earlier, Suicide is never the answer – People DO want to hear what you have to say.  People DO love you – reach out, if you can’t talk to friends or family then please call 1-800-273-8255 and talk to the people at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
